Terrible- will NOT open This app would not open AFTER I paid for it. My daughter was very upset. I should have listened to other peoples reviews!!!! Very disappointed.
My pre-k kids love this app This app is awesome in the game section! The only issue I have that I hope to find someone to help me fix (hint hint) is that the videos won't play at all. This is really frustrating for my youngest daughter.
Decent, but a couple issues First off, the variety of games is pretty good. It covers recognizing the alphabet, the sounds the letters make, the alphabet, and the motions needed to draw the letters. These are all things I want my kids to get assistance with from this app, and it does that well with assistance from their favorite super why characters I really like that the app doesn't have advertisements (horrible for kids due to them getting tricked, bad websites etc). I expect no ads from a paid app anyway, so that isn't all that special. Now some issues/complaints: - the first time you run the app it spends a lot of time downloading additional content. It took about 3x as long to download this additional content as to download the asp itself, so based on your connection this could be significant. - in the alpha pig game, you can press each of the letters before he has explained which letter you're looking for. My 2.5 year old just mashes all the letters early and eventually gets it right. Something should change, maybe do not allow answers until he has said the letter you're looking for. - in the princess mini game the movement is clunky and letters can get behind the word you're on
There are 5 activities geared toward letter recognition, letter sounds, and writing letters. Appropriate for the PK to K level. There are also 4 sing along videos (eg. alphabet song) - these are ok but after the first couple times my daughter didn't want to hear them anymore. In addition there is a map that you decorate with the souvenirs you earn by doing the activities. My 3 year old (almost 4) says she likes this app, but I personally think there are a few tweaks that would make it better/easier for a toddler. It doesn't really teach reading, at least not in an effective way, so in this regard it could be better. The app works well in that it doesn't freeze or crash (at least not yet).
Toddler loves it! Use this on a Acer Iconia tablet. 2 year old loves this game! Works great besides being slow at times but that is probably because of my older tablet. Worth the $! Great educational tool!
Excellent Learning tool for little ones. So, Happy they came out with this application. My G babies love it, they love to learn and watch superwhy, Woofster, Princess P, Pig and Wonder Red.
